Continued Growth and a Confident Future Drive PROjEN’s Move

Cheshire based engineering Project Management Company, PROjEN, currently based in Northwich is to relocate just 7 miles to new and larger premises in Preston Brook. Continued growth following the launch of a range of new services including a portfolio of energy management services has forced the company to outgrow their current premises.

Established over 30 years ago in 1978, PROjEN has operated from the existing site on Winnington Avenue, Northwich for 14 years. Moving to the new premises at Preston Brook will allow PROjEN to continue to grow within its expanding markets. The new premises are 50% larger, offering a better working environment for its employees and room for further growth. The new site provides over 10,000ft² and will be occupied by PROjEN’s 100+ office and site based personnel.

The new office is conveniently located off Junction 11 on the M56 and provides space to facilitate PROjEN’s further 50% growth expectations over the next few years. New facilities include increased parking and office space, kitchens, showers, excellent storage facilities and improved disabled access as well as a far superior climate control system. Jayne Bryan, PROjEN’s new marketing communications recruit comments;

“I am delighted to join PROjEN at this exciting time. Based at the Northwich office the company is bursting at the seams; I do not even have my own desk to work from! The new premises offer PROjEN the space for future expansion and I look forward to contributing to the continued success and growth of the company”.

The move is taking place on 30th October. PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook comments

“PROjEN are extremely pleased to announce this move. We always knew a time would come when we needed to relocate, but the growth in staff numbers over recent years has brought this decision forward. The size, design and overall appearance of the new offices will complement more closely the vision of PROjEN as we strive to reach our company goals in years to come.”

Employees at PROjEN Ltd raise money for charity

PROjEN, the specialist engineering Project Management Company, based in Northwich Cheshire is proud to announce raising £133.16 after supporting Jeans for Genes day on Friday 2nd October.

Each member of staff in the office that day took part by donating £2 to wear their jeans to work. The money raised will go towards funding the care and support for children and families affected by genetic disorders, as well as research into the causes and cures of these conditions.

The aim of Jeans for Genes is to change the world for children living with genetic disorders. Research shows that genetic disorders affect 1 in 33 children born in the UK – the equivalent to one in every class of school children. Many of these disorders have no treatment available and more than half of all childhood deaths in the UK are linked to a genetic condition.

PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook is delighted with the level of participation and enthusiasm that PROjEN’s employees demonstrate:

“It is fantastic to see the level of support and commitment everyone at PROjEN show when participating at fundraising events. On Jeans for Genes day all at PROjEN were committed to raising money at this fun but beneficial event.”

PROjEN raises over £500 for KidsCan

PROjEN has raised a total of £545 for the charity KidsCan following a successful health and safety initiative at one of the company’s major industrial projects. The “KidsCan” Children’s Cancer Research Centre is working hard to promote and support research into the causes, prevention, treatment and cure of cancers in children. No other charity researches into specifically children’s cancers which makes their work both unique and vital.

Kidscan was chosen as the charity to receive the donation from the health and safety initiative by PROjEN’s Mark Warrington and Steve Campbell following a conversation with Mark and friend Gary Billington who works at INEOS Chlor. In an effort to help raise funds for Kidscan, Gary, along with Tony Wilkinson and a number of friends, took part in the 100 mile fund raising bike ride “The Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge” on Sunday 27th September. This has currently raised a total of £1,860 which is very close to the original target of £2,000

On all major projects PROjEN encourages a health and safety initiative at their various sites to promote the importance of excellent heath and safety practice. These initiatives are usually linked to a series of fund raising activities with partner contractors. This scheme was introduced by PROjEN to promote the safety culture for all PROjEN personnel and appointed sub contractors working on behalf of Greenergy on a major project in Plymouth. Fully endorsed by Greenergy’s Stephen McCaffrey, the health and safety scheme is a very important communication tool in educating all personnel on the issues surrounding safety in the work place.
